Volume 41 ofMethods in Microbiologyis a methods book designed to highlight procedures that will revitalize the purposes and practices of prokaryotic systematics. This volume will notably show that genomics and computational biology are pivotal to the new direction of travel and will emphasise that new developments need to be built upon historical good practices, notably the continued use of the nomenclatural type concept and the requirement to deposit type strains in at least two service culture collections in different countries.

  • Detailed protocols on cutting edge methods
  • Prepared by leading international experts in the relevant fields
Professor Mike Goodfellow was awarded undergraduate and postgraduate degrees from the University of Liverpool where his life long interests in pure and applied microbial systematics began. He developed his expertise in actinobacterial systematics as an MRC Junior Research Fellow in the MRC Microbial Systematics Unit at the University o...
